Lizard scarf

This is my newest favorite project!


It is made with navajo plied Polworth handspun from fleece I bought at London-Wul. Heidi had dyed it in the best autumn colors.

I found the stitch pattern in Stitchionary I and it worked out perfectly.

**UPDATE - The rows were mixed up but are now corrected**
Here are the instructions:
CO 26 sts on 5.5mm needles (larger than normal)
Row 1 & 2: Knit
Row 3: *K6, YO, K1, YO x 2, K1, YO x 3, K1, YO x 2, K1, YO, repeat from * to last 6 stitches. K6.
Row 4: Knit letting all YO's drop
Row 5 & 6: Knit
Row 7: K1, *YO, K1, YO x 2, K1, YO x 3, K1, YO x 2, K1, YO, K6, repeat from * to last stitch, K1
Row 8: Knit letting all YO's drop

Repeat 8 rows until scarf is desired length. I used the full 4 ozs with just enough left to cast off.


I like this scarf so much I've now bought 2 more bags of fiber to make more for Christmas presents. Better get spinning, but first I'm now off to an Organizational Behavior class.
